Being neutral is hard. An association earns friends and revolt brings fame. Neutrality gifts you a signboard for disloyalty and selfishness. But the opinionated don’t realise it takes courage to say no , and even more to say it twice to both parties.

How bold do you have to be in life? How much will you compromise in the name of tolerance? When you are brought up your whole life to mind your manners and live for peace, how do you train to find the courage to stand up and raise your voice? Will you watch in the bystanders shoes while someone brews trouble mercilessly? The strength you want to muster is asking your brain to let it slide and move on because you know lone lions are heading extinction. And it’s exactly this attitude that poltergeists want to fuel and reign over chaos. Because you choose to walk away , turn deaf , lay low in lieu of your own safety and tranquility. Choosing flight over fight , you always remain the prey.

Flying high above the ground,
At peace with my inner sound,
Holding your hands firmly,
Believing it's not just another fling,
Cause I can see in your eyes,
Love for me, that makes me fly,
And you will never let me fall,
Together we will journey through the life,
There won't ever come fork in our road.

Mis letras son el refugio a mi dolor. Acá donde se que algún día me leerás dejo escrito lo que siento. Este es mi escondite para cuando estoy cansado, cuando siento que mi cuerpo no puede más con tanto peso.
Me nubla la cabeza mis pensamientos y mi corazón arde, se llena de ira e impotencia. Pero que puedo hacer? Allá estás tu con tu mundo extraño de comportamientos y sin palabras para mi. No te importa esconderte. Lo haces de lejos como un ladrón y con el poco orgullo que tengo te pido que si has de matarme. Hazlo de frente. Matame de una vez no lastimes más la herida con tu insolencia. Prefiero la espada directa al corazón que mil flechas a el. Pero que te importa a ti? No es la primera ve...

Thank you so much for critiquing my work. I really love to hear feedback. It’s not really about winning a prize for me, I do it because writing saves my life everyday. I don’t have much in this life but I do have my words. I appreciate this letter so much. I love reading people’s stories and I see people reading mine.

Who is my idol or who really inspires me?

All my life people have dug their claws into my skin and tore flesh from the bone. 
They left me standing there bleeding out all on my own.

So can you blame me for not looking you in the eye? 
Because all I have ever wanted was to live while others wanted me to die

Are you surprised I mumble and fumble my words?
When others have taken what I have said and buried it in the dirt

It has never been my intention to be malicious or cruel
So why am I treated like scum on the sole of a shoe? 

I'm just doing my best to carry this trauma on my back 
Traveling with empathy and compassion, the things those others lack

I ask as I wander "what did I do to warrant such abuse?"

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

Dear
people with broken heart & the ones who tend to break,

His Love Is Accumulating Dust On My Heart. It's piling up. He who walks into my life first decides to run his finger over it. It's hell, hopeless & disappointing when the dust sticks to him & he wipes it off. Even my tears are unable to wash it off.

Loneliness creeps in like a black, disgusting devil but I've rose from the grave, dug in the way of underworld. I'm able to battle with him!

Thank you for writing to me!

I'm so thrilled and honored to receive your letter and the announcement that I have been awarded the Third Place in the 200th Skylark Challenge!! 🥳✨🎉🎊

I have been waiting in quiet anticipation for the announcements, albeit nervously, because I have been super excited since you sent out the prompt for the contest.

As an artist and lover of art, I couldn't help but set my eyes on the prizes! Honestly I wish I could have done better to win the art piece. I absolutely loved the color scheme, the abstract background, the Skylark and the beautiful haiku that goes along. 

Nevertheless, I'm happy with the verdict and look forward to the goodies! 😍✨...

Thank you so much Becca. I feel like I'm floating on cloud nine right now! Winning the challenge was really beyond expectation after reading other amazing stories by people. I am soooooooooo happy.

The feedbacks are another thing that am grateful for. I too thought in the second entry I'm being a little forceful with the words, but the idea was stuck in my mind and I just had to write it down. I'll give it another try, and see if I can do more justice to it.

As for the first entry Becca, I think I couldn't convey it properly, so I'll improve in that also.

Still I'd like to tell you what I intended in the story, and you might then be able to help me how I could ...

What am I grateful for?

Yes, I made through another day
Without faltering on the way
But is it all that I ever wish may?

Yes, I smiled and laughed at all cues
Worked through all of day's hues
Swallowing away the myriad of rues.

So then, what was the accomplishment?

That this heart is still not frost
And not all hope is yet lost
This effort will not me exhaust!

In murky waters, I didn't drown
In judgemental tones, I didn't frown
My Empathy, I wore like a Crown.

Your scoldings made me realise how much I messed up sometimes,
Your suggestions, opinions and recommendations told me, how much you care about me,
You all teaming up against me to crack jokes, told me how am always gonna be your lil sis,
Your mocking tone told me, I need to become more mature to face the world alone,
And everytime I thought I am doomed, your hand that came to support me told, you're always gonna have my back.
Thank you for each and every moment, memory and lesson. Thank you being an important part of my life and being.

I feel so far from you lately
I know we are never truly apart
That energy knows no distance
But that doesn’t change the pain
Doesn’t calm the storms that rage
In my heart and soul
The selfish me has wants and needs
While my soulful side
Preaches patience and peace
I’m torn between what’s seen and unseen
What I know is true
From the depths of my being
So I’ll choose to keep the faith
To trust my path
And the life we’ll create
Just know right know I miss you so
I feel your love and feel your soul
One day soon I’ll hold you close
And share my heart
With the soul I love most

Not every darkened cloud
ends up becoming a storm.
Some pass without disruption
but there will be days where the sun remains hidden from view.
Tread lightly on those days,
do not allow your thoughts to linger.
The moment the sun returns,
the struggle you endured and overcame
will be your new level of growth
in the same way that a flower grows before it blooms.

as we call them home
they recognize the salt living in our bones,
the breath of oceans roaring in our souls
we sit on thrones made of sequins and stars,
dressed in crowns of precious coral
we swim beneath the surface of your subconscious,
modern kings and queens ushering in
the realm of sleep
here, we are royalty
here, we hold hands with the moon
and become one with the tide

She's a poem
But she's full of pain
She's the sun
But she can't see
the day
She's the moon
Because she is not tired
of giving her smile to others
She's a flower
bloomed from pain.
She's so strong
and so fragile. -Maya

I hope you know that for all these past nine years I have not stopped mentioning your name to the sky. I hope you know that you are the title of a book I read every night until sleep steals me. I hope you know that I am still writing for you and about you.
I hope you know that I am still gripping your grief. I hope you know that all days come with your smile. I hope you know that you are still in the details of my life even if I no longer see you. I hope you know that your memories are the sea I visit whenever I want to cry. I hope you always know that if things were on my hand. I would never make the whole universe forget you. -Maya

Listening to the voices speak for their political drums, seeing the people march to the political beat.

They say we think for ourselves. I laugh at their words. You are sheep,waiting for the reasons, a reason to riot. A reason to hate. You march to nothing but the deliverance of emptiness that bullies others to your own pace!

You believe you are right. If it offends you, rip it down, burn the books, destroy history. Go to the safe places, hide flee.

We have turned into a nation where we preach being wrong does not matter, get a trophy just for participation.

If our old men and women preach it from the tops of congress, it is progress? No it is hot air with a lot of stress!

and dip my fingers
in the divine connection
i weave threads of its shimmer
into a ravel of hibiscus,
translating beauty
into a new language
that only exists
in these petals of protection
guarded by ocean waves
the seagulls sing their approval,
already versed in the intricacies
of each new letter
i hope you learn its every curve
and paint the world

73 years of joy, lurked by the horrors of past,
Sacrifices of men and women alike, made worthy at last.

Children of today cry for virtual freedom,
Complain about how modern world can’t overcome,
Unknown of the pains of our forefather for freedom to live,
A concept so far off, yet they were determined to thrive.

Gokhale to Gandhi, ashfaqullah to Azad,
The kings and queens of counties far and wide,
Divided by culture, Caste and language,
United by one stride.

Reformers to thinkers, idealist to extremist,
Different ways to protest and fight,
Yet driven by one goal, to seek what is their birth right.

Some rose to prominence, some unknown souls,
Some echoing screams in massacre,
Some silen...

There are so many
reasons to be alive
but the dark attraction
of death tosses its
shadow over the
brilliance that you were so
much looking forward to,
embracing all your
natural powers,
such a magnificent
energy that's always
been, yet some people
like you who refuse
its aid, a choice based on
pride, or any of the
seven deadly sins...
but there's hope for you
Let your body and mind
start the healing process
Rid yourself of want
Steer clear of desire
For with what life has to
offer, there is no need
This is a blessing

I live in the notion
Of fear
With a feeling
surrounded by demons

Selfishness has taken away their soul
Making them think
It's only money
That can afford

The meaning of humanity
Seems to be in despair
Making me think
Is this the world
We dreamt of ??

Epilogue  
I refute the language
of shadows
of light and dark
good and evil

What was born as a fear
of dark
absence
the dim places where the
wild things devour
has twisted under streetlights
into a fear of ourselves
a dichotomy of racist
narrative
where light and dark are 
insidious metaphors for 
people
so buried in subconscious culture
we cannot disentangle them
from ourselves
These children claim
woke
but are we not
still living in
a dream within a dream?
and how many awakenings must there be
before we are 
still
truly

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...

Hi all,
It's unique, kind of weird, but seems like a lot of fun so even I'm writing to you, for the first time, not knowing who you are, or what I'm supposed to talk about.

I think my first letter should be about motivation, as it has been the sole reason of all that I've achieved till date.

I can safely say, every individual, on this earth can achieve more than what he has, do more than what he's doing and can go beyond his capabilities.. with a motivated mind.

Wish you the best.

Dear Lettrs,

I think that my first letter here should be written to you. I came to this website by chance while I was browsing for something else for my friend, but it kept me for quite some time before I've moved on.

Some of the letters here are very emotional and they reach out. Reading these, it reminded me of something my friend said (about diaries, but the meaning is the same): "Do you know why people open their hearts to a piece of paper? Because they cannot confide to other people." Here, after quite some time passed since I've first heard it, I think I finally understand what she meant.

It's too early to say whether I'll be writing here regularly or not, but I think that ther...

Let’s go on a boat trip
Let’s sail away
That’s what I said to you
The night we drifted away
I was flying free on the boat
As the sails were flying high
The ocean beneath us calm
Under the star bright sky
We sailed to different islands
No man had ever been
We skinny dipped in clear waters
And our kisses were the footprints
I thought we had everything,
Each other and a boat
But I forgot to check your luggage
You had left your heart upon the shore

Dear Reader,

It’s been almost two years since my last letters. What a wild ride. For those of you that have continually given your all to my cause, I am grateful. Without you my journey would not be possible.

Life is long... but then we blink and it’s the years that pass and we become old. We blink again and children are born, people pass, and our body withers. However, amidst all life’s realities and struggles, possibilities still exist. The world keeps going. And you do to. Believe in yourself and make your dreams come true. It can happen. Nothing is impossible. Work hard and you will get to play hard.
Continue to be you.
